BBC News - Pakistan: US suspends $800m of military aid
Next up: suspend $800million of aid to Israel.
why didn't they cut all 2 billion?
Agreed on both counts, the Federal government should give no foreign aid. Only the people should give their own money to where they want it to go. As for me, I would donate to Israel but not Pakistan, but I still don't want money confiscated and given to Israel.
Uncle Ferd says mebbe we'd be better off if we just got it over with an' nuked `em...
Analysts: Suspension of Aid to Pakistan Could be Risky
July 11, 2011 - The Obama administration has said it will suspend hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid and reimbursements to Pakistan. The move is widely seen as reflecting a high level of frustration in Washington with the Pakistani government. It is also a highly risky step to take against a government that is a key ally in a war.
At least the US benefits from Israel's technology and intel. It's more of a payoff for making Israel the Police of the Middle East + coordinating on technology and weapons and medical developments.
I've hated our relationship with Pakistan ever since 9/11. Well, moreso. Pakistan is a breeding camp for terrorists...but we wanted their airspace.
No they don't. It's quite the opposite. The US is constantly getting spied on by Israel and they steal technology from us. That..and Israel actually kills US Military and citizens. They cause all sorts of problems in the Middle East. Israel is a nasty little country that has no compulsion whatsoever to deal with it's neighbors. Why? Because their military is funded by the US. They are far from "the police" of the Middle East. They are more the "Snotty little brat" we constantly have to protect.
I'm glad the Pakis are getting sent packin'.
That's a nice start.
Now start cutting off ALL foreign aid, military and otherwise, to all countries; bring out combat and non-combat troops home from everywhere outside our borders; and kick all the foreigners out of our country (this includes those whose primary allegiance is to a religion instead of to this country).
